Finally Living on Island Time!

Florida has no shortage of small islands that dot the coasts, none as stunning as the ones within walking distance of Dunedin. When I relocated to Dunedin, Florida, I wasn't sure what to expect. The Gulf of Mexico and beaches are breathtaking, stretching for miles in either direction. The beaches at New Port Richey are the best-kept secret on the west coast of the Sunshine State.

If you love the outdoors, the best areas in Dunedin are the beaches, the state parks, the beach bars, and the outdoor restaurants. Honeymoon Island State Park reaches into the Gulf of Mexico and offers you some amazing views of the wildlife that flock to this region. Swim with the manatees, or take a charter and catch some of the biggest fish you've ever seen.

The neighborhood I live is tucked away from the crowds that flock to Tampa, Saint Petersburg, and Clearwater. Living in Dunedin gives me the chance to shop at the best boutiques, eat at the finest restaurants, and spent countless hours outside all year.
